Après Ski Bar
Longhorn. As you slide down the last piece of slope into Whistler Village, there it is, like a big grin, beckoning your sore legs in for a cold beer. The Longhorn has received international fame as the ultimate après-ski spot, and Whistlerites second that emotion. Head inside for appetizers on the cold days or prop your sticks up by the patio wall and share a pitcher on the huge patio on the sunny afternoons. Either way, a day on the slopes without a stop at the Longhorn somehow feels incomplete.
Merlin's in the Upper Village took second for their great après tunes and mammoth nacho platters, while third place went to Dusty's in Creekside.
Citta's - If you're hanging with a group of friends on the Citta's patio, always have a couple extra chairs around because it's inevitable that more and more friends will just happen to be walking by and decide to sit a while. That's the great thing about patios. They're as much about who's walking by as who's at the table, and Citta's rounded deck, right in the thick of the village, attracts passersby like a magnet.
Second place goes to the Longhorn's patio, the ultimate après meeting spot at the base of the mountain. Third place goes to the smaller but equally as fun patio outside the Amsterdam, just a stone's throw from the winner.
Place to shoot some stick
Cinnamon Bear. Follow the maze of hallways through the Delta Whistler Resort lobby level and eventually you'll end up at the Cinnamon Bear, a lounge as warm as the name implies. Soft lighting, armchairs, a blazing fireplace, and a corner with a couple of pool tables where friends can meet and shoot stick without worrying about some bozo bumping their elbows or spilling beer in front of the eight ball.
In second place was après ski winner the Longhorn and in third place, Buffalo Bill's.
Citta's - Protruding into the busiest stroll in the village like a hitchhiker's thumb, Citta's is the ultimate people-watching/gathering spot. The large patio also took first place honours and inside, it's not the biggest place, but two levels make it comfortable. Lots of tables, nice lighting, big windows and a corner to shoot some stick. In terms of location and atmosphere it's the ultimate meeting place. So it's no surprise it's the local's choice this year for best place to hang.
In second place is casual sports pub Tapley's, where the game is always on and friends are made over beers and darts.
